County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) Transmittal Letter
May 30, 2012
Dear Mr. Fiume:
This letter concerns the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) Americans with Disabilities Act of !990 (ADA) Complementary Paratransit Service Review of the County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) conducted May 19- 22, 2008. FT A would like to thank you and your staff for the cooperation provided during the review. We appreciated the opportunity to speak with you and John Tomcho of Lackawanna County Coordinated Transportation System (LCCTS) on February 14, 2012 to discuss the findings and to answer your questions. As discussed during the call, FTA has clarified the finding concerning COLTS' complaint process. Enclosed is a copy of the Final Report which will be posted on FT A's website on our ADA page.
We appreciated your informing us that COLTS plans to acquire LCCTS by the end of the year. With that transition in mind, we ask COLTS to provide updated corrective actions and revised implementation dates to address the findings in the report. After reviewing the revisions, FTA will work with COLTS to establish specific milestones and timelines that FTA will use to monitor COLTS' progress, with the goal of resolving as many of the findings as possible prior to COLTS' acquisition of LCCTS.
Please provide the revised corrective action plan within 30 days of the date of this letter to Susan Clark, Equal Opportunity Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org with another electronic copy to Jonathan Ocana, Acting Regional Civil Rights Officer for Region III, at email@example.com. If you have any questions concerning this request, please contact Ms. Clark at (202)493-05 J l or at her e-mail address above. Thank you.
